Game description

This game can be played either as a contest between two teams or as a playoff game for all participants. The conditions are the same for both: Each player receives two toothpicks. Then the game leader puts a pen or a matchbox on those two toothpicks. The objective now is for the kid who has the object on his toothpicks to pass it on to the next kid, of course without dropping the item. However, if the object falls to the ground after all, then those both kids have to leave the active players and the game starts all over again. There is now real winner because there are always two children eliminated at the same time. With a little practice, the last participants, however, might be able to balance the object for quite some time. It is recommended to stop the game at some time, for those who are still playing as well as those who are eliminated and give the kids a new task.
